Starting to climb Aconcagua
Finally at the slopes of Aconcagua. Tomorrow we will start climbing up. It will be 3 days, 40 km and 1700 m altitude to the base camp. We hike up the Vacas and Ameghino Valleys from the east, with mules carrying our gear. After base camp we carry everything.
We are now at 2500 meters Altura, like they say in Spanish. Speaking Spanish is by the way fun, even when I cannot talk it, but by trying the correct word will be found little by little.
Base camp is at 4200 meters.
The views are great, even Chile can be seen from here. I trained a little bit climbing up some 350 meters.
After tomorrow no wifi for 2 weeks. This blog & photos were sent from some kind of a storage room where I found a slow connection!
